REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
While this candy had a wonderful flavor, exactly like the old Kraft butter mints, I, being a novice candy maker, mistakenly assumed that 1 lb. of powdered sugar meant 16 oz., or 2 cups. I was definitely wrong. For any future cooks who want to make this, I found a conversion chart that tells me that 3 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar is equal to 1 pound. Now, I have lots of ooey, gooey good tasting blobs sitting on my table! I will attempt to scrape it all up into a bowl and ad another cup and 1/2 of sugar to it and try to re-form the mints. The taste is very good though and I love the blend of the oil of peppermint and the butter flavor. Thanks for the tasty treat recipe! I'll give it another shot and update my review then.
